I also like Forth (since 83), but haven't done much in the last decade.
I was newsletter editor for our local FIG for many years.
I have met and debated with Elizabeth Rather, and been a "third hand"
for Chuck Moore when he was re-soldering wires on his prototype Forth board.
You can see my name in the X3J14 standard:
I'd be interested in a "more modern" Forth, but naturally, as a member
of band of rugged individualists, I wonder if it can possibly satisfy
more than one of us.
That site is my first time I recall seeing "concatenative" as a type of
language. Interesting way of thinking of it. I just call it RPN, and
relate it to the original HP35 calculator ($400, in about 1972).
From the overview, it looks like they're at least aiming at what I
envisioned as the next Forth I wanted to use. Instead of putting ints
and addresses on the stack, you put refs to objects, in the Python
sense. Those objects are also gc'ed. I don't know yet whether
everything is an object, or whether (like Java), you have boxed and
Sounds interesting, and well worth investigating. thanks for pointing
